Annotation

Fictional commentary on the position of women in 1888 Bellamy. The protagonist complains about how male Nationalists treat women as weaker than men and needing care even though she is supporting herself and her brother and living a vigorous, healthy life. Bellamy expanded his presentation of the treatment of women in “Woman in the Year 2000” (1891) and significantly modified it in Equality (1897).
